Farmer John says that there will be several opportunities to visit the farm in the coming weeks. The first will be this Sunday, 9/17, a farm visit he is hosting in conjunction with Local Harvest to observe National Gleaning week.
Local Harvest is a group that works with local farms to collect their culled and excess produce for distribution to food banks, pantries and soup kitchens. Gleaners are volunteers who help harvest un-needed produce that would otherwise go to waste in the field.
The event is from 11 am until 4 pm (or as long as folks want to hang out). It will be a potluck barbecue featuring farm tours, gleaning, and maybe some live music.
